The Party Line: a VNP volunteer celebration

Ticket sales have closed. 

We're glad so many people will be joining us to celebrate 2017 and fire up for 2018. If you can't join us in Saginaw, please join us in spirit by making a $5 donation to VNP. Michigan needs an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. You know it, and you want everyone else to know it. Your donation will help VNP spread the word!


We did it, and it wouldn't have happened without each and every one of you! We needed 315,654 signatures in 180 days... and got nearly 450,000 in less than 110 days! Next, we need to convince 2,000,000 voters to vote "Yes", and we only have 8 months to do it.

We've done something incredible, and that deserves a party! We're about to do something even more incredible, and that deserves a kick-off rally!

Join fellow volunteers from all 14 regions for "The Party Line", VNP's first-ever all-volunteer celebration! We're gathering at a central location on Saturday, February 24 so VNP-ers from every region can join an evening of fun! Heavy appetizers will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

•  Celebrate the huge successes of 2017!
•  Get fired up for 2018 canvassing with campaign President Katie Fahey and Field Director Jamie Lyons-Eddy!
•  Eat, drink, and play gerrymandering-themed games with teammates from your town and new friends from the other end of Michigan!
•  Compare notes and strategies with people from other regions!
•  ...and don't be surprised if there are some gerrymandering parody musical performances from our endlessly creative volunteers!

VNP is asking for a donation for each ticket in order to help offset the costs to put on an event of this size. We are an all-volunteer grassroots campaign of regular Michiganders just like you, who have trusted us enough to donate their hard-earned money toward our proposal. We need to make sure we can dedicate those donations to critical activities like education, canvassing, GOTV, and defending against opposition attacks. Every dollar that VNP uses toward this event is a dollar that's no longer available for those needs! We're glad to have volunteers who understand the need for ticket donations! If none of the donation levels available will allow you to attend, please email Events Director Jordan Smellie at; we'll make sure you can join us.
